Comcast RISE

Comcast RISE is supporting the growth of small businesses and entrepreneurs committed to uplifting their local communities. The program is built to help businesses and their communities thrive with a focus on economic growth. This year, Comcast RISE will award 500 recipients in five cities grant packages that include business consultation services, education resources, monetary grants, and creative production, media schedules, and technology makeovers.


Now in its fourth year, Comcast RISE celebrates supporting a total of 13,500 small business owners with tech services, marketing resources, and millions of dollars in grants.


Entrepreneurs in 1,321 cities across 38 states were selected as Comcast RISE recipients.


Comcast RISE awarded over $125 million in monetary, marketing, and technology grants.

During the past three years, we have gathered the learnings from this program and found new ways to further empower and strengthen even more small businesses and entrepreneurs, who are the backbone of our economy and local communities. By offering grant packages that include marketing, technology, financial grants, and business consulting, we can further our efforts to positively impact small businesses in 2024 and beyond.
